A major component of the Masters program in Creative Studies is Creative Problem Solving (CPS). This project was conducted using CPS. I needed to organize and redecorate my house, but did not know where to start. There was so much clutter that it seemed like an overwhelming task. Using Creative Problem Solving gave me a process to use in order to complete the steps needed to organize and redecorate five rooms in our house. I used the components of CPS and incorporated appropriate tools to use throughout the stages. I have included my process as well as what I have learned throughout that process. As a result of this project, I was able to create an organized and inviting home, which fosters creativity.
